We stumbled onto the Blue Marlin while looking for a place to eat near the Malecon. An extremely welcoming attitude plus great food at reasonable prices. I recommend the coconut shrimp. This is a place we will patronize often.

Just go here! Awesome food and service, order the Neptune Platter well worth the price and make sure to wear your stretchy pants! Perfect location but the center of town, look for the Maroon awning.

We did not make a reservation, we were just walking by and saw the sign and read the menu. An English-speaking waiter came to greet us so we entered. The margaritas were excellent.

Seafood options mostly, all very fresh. Not a lot of classic Mexican but they make fresh guacamole that's delicious and offer rice and beans. The menu is more upscale type dishes but good portions and really good.
